Footy Legends - A great feel good movie for all ages
I went to the premier of the movie last night in Canberra. It was hosted by the Australia Day council and there was a host of different people with different backgrounds. Khoa Do (The 2005 Young Australian of the year) was also present at the launch which made the experience more special.
I'm not a fan of Australian movies to be honest, but I have to admit I actually enjoyed this movie a lot. Nothing special about the plot, we have all seen it seen movies about the UNDERDOGS. What makes this movie enjoyable is the fact that there are a host of actors that will deliver that "Feel Good" and "comical" experience through out the whole movie. The older actors are an absolute classic! The young Vietnamese girl plays an awesome role. We all know Anh Do is funny, but you do get to see his serious side which is enjoyable as well. Even the referees and the sausages (you will have to watch the movie to understand) will make you feel good!
I saw the movie with 6 females, and we all laughed and enjoyed the movie immensely! Some of them don't follow Rugby League so you don't need to be a fan to understand it. Honestly, this movie caters for all ages, so don't be turned off by the (PG) rating, there is plenty of funny and enjoyable moments throughout the movie.
It's not a Hollywood movie, but if this movie had the budget it would be up there! Well done for a great feel good movie that Australia has been missing for a long time!
